Very informative on learning why we measure the way we do. I had no idea that the push for metric in the US went back into the 1800's.

What made the experience of listening to Whatever Happened to the Metric System? the most enjoyable?
This is a far-reaching, exhaustively researched book that not only covers every aspect of the modern world's struggle to unify measures, but also deftly paints the historical backgrounds against which each episode is set and to which each is tied. The narrator expertly captures the author's subtle shuttling from academics to wry humor and back again. I cannot recommend this book too highly.
